This quantity includes a number of the papers awarded on the eighth convention on Colloid Chemistry. It was once hosted by means of the Hungarian Chemical Society and arranged by way of Budapest collage of know-how and Economics and used to be held in Keszthely, Hungary in September 2002. A colloidal method of nano technological know-how used to be one of many major issues of the assembly. It was once printed that the colloid technology presents a powerful historical past of the fashionable fabric technological know-how and nanotechnology. This quantity is meant for execs doing basic examine or improvement of commercial purposes, who come upon colloid debris, colloid constructions, and interface phenomena in the course of their paintings.
